and on foreign policy of what's happened the last three weeks which haven't been a good three weeks for the president. i think romney will try to unnerve the president by challenging him directly on this. saying you failed to lead these last three weeks and your vision for the economy is just wrong and try to get under his skin that way. i don't think obama is very flappable. but in terms of these are your policies, they don't work. we tried likable. now we need competent, he's probably going to try to do that. >> we all remember the zingers. i knew jack kennedy. we remember those things. but ultimately voters do they take away a more general feeling from the debates rather than any one line they might remember ten years later? >> absolutely, yes they do. and it comes back to who understands their lives, who's going to do a better job leading the country forward. >> governor markel, great to have you here. matt welch, dana milbank. thanks to all of you. >>> unfortunately there has been another suicide attack. it hit u.s. forces in afghanistan this morning. killing at least 14 people
the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals. (applause) >> joining me now we have a studio audience let's welcome the one and only donald trump. >> great
is determined to cut it. foreign policy and defense policy could be a bigger issue than people expect in the final months of election. >> geraldo: is there still an appetite for an aggressive foreign policy for the military to be projected in the way that mitt romney suggests it should be? i sense great that failures teague out there. what is why there is not a lot of pressure on the president to intervene in syria for example where the blood is flowing in the streets. >> there is a fatigue and also a sense of u.s. responsibility and also a sense of the stronger the u.s. military is the less likely we have to fight. this is a recipe for trouble we followed in the last three or four years and lead to us having to intervene in ways we wouldn't have had to if we looked strong and kept our military prepared and willing to do a little more earlier on in some of the conflicts. a tricky think politically. i think mitt romney is going to lay out what he thinks is right for the country. you cannot calibrate our foreign policy week to week and month to month. i think mitt romney will try to add
the president for what he calls a failed foreign policy? an op-ed in today's op-ed journal, romney declared the president is weakening the america's position in the world writing, "by failing to maintain the element of our influence and by stepping away from the allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand in american policy that lax resolve can provoke aggressio aggression. and carriage disorder." after a weekend of debate prep in boston, romney left for denver an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played the game of lowering expectations for the governor. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. thursday morning, the entire narrati
in the second inning of a long, long ball game. >> when it gets to the foreign policy debate which is the last one, lots to discuss there, obviously, syria, also libya with ambassador stevens. but an interesting interview with john mccain. he's saying he's damned if he's going to give up freedom of speech because it may possibly offend the prophet muhammed. what do you make of that? >> well, he's certainly right on that. there's going to be no disagreement there. i think that the republicans are increasingly going to focus on what happened in libya, why there wasn't better security for ambassador stevens, and i think that's a legitimate area to poke on. i do think it's kind of small bore. this is not something the president is deciding on, the security in benghazi. i think that also, while obama has his failures in foreign policy, they are not ones that romney can easily pick up on. >> he could always, i would knowledge ma, imagine, in a debate turn on i killed osama bin laden. that is an undisputable vote winner for the american public. >> one of my friends on facebook was joking that he shou
the critical role of the presidency particularly with a foreign policy crisis, with so many questions about management in the middle east when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time with so much concern over iran? >> this president has been, obviously, in constant contact throughout these four years with world leaders. megyn: joining me now, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president bush, and dick harpootlian, chairman of the south carolina democratic party. welcome back. now we see some of the senior advisers and some tough questioning put to them, in particular about a subject we've talked about on this show, and that is whether it was appropriate for the commander in chief, you know, within 24 hours of this assassination, first time since '79 a u.s. ambassador was assassinated plus three other americans, to go out to vegas on a campaign event, brad? >> well, look, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing
side's strategy. >> hey, fred. foreign policies in the campaign spotlight tomorrow when mitt romney gives what his team is billing as a big speech at the virginia military institute which happens to be in a crucial battleground state. we may hear romney criticize the president over last month's killing of the u.s. ambassador to libya. >> we face a time when there is item u tumult in the middle east and other parts of america and people are asking, where is the president? president obama is in another crucial swing state, ohio. both candidates will profile seizure gats this week. former president clinton teams up with mr. obama at a fundraiser tonight in california. two days later, clinton campaigns for the president in another battleground, nevada. >> mitt is up to the task. he's prepared. >> romney's wife ann goes in front of cameras wednesday morning when she's a special co-host on abc's "good morning, america." but the highlight of the week is this week's vice presidential debate. both are preparing for their own showdown which takes place thursday in danville, kentucky. >> i'm l
looking ahead to the debate on foreign policy? it's not something governor romney has been having a lot of experience in. and any thought on that one? >> well, there is a target rich environment. the president has a dismal record there. tonight talking about domestic policy hard for the president to defend his position there's is a record which makes it very difficult for him to defend. looking at the cost of gasoline which is double. health care, up 30% and college tuition up 35%. incomes having gone down z there is a shift there is a same set circumstances there is tumult in places like the middle east and a president whose policies are perceived around the world as weak and ineffective. and this is an area people might perceive governor romney not as experienced in i think he has a great opportunity to make foreign policy decisions. >> up next our famous political panel who. did they think put more points on the board? you have to hear what they very v.to say, and you will, they're next. >> my plan has five parts. one gives us energy independence. and that creates about four million
'll see there's a left rail that lets you click on whatever issue is important to you. foreign policy, education, abortion, or immigration. i want to show you an example of some of the kinds of things you can learn about if you look at what we've got here online. i'm not pretending to summarize the entire race where everyone stands on it. a few points from president obama and mitt romney, you can learn more about these online. president obama's plan halting deportations of many young people. also, the way he's been criticized from the left as well as the right for an overall lack of reform. mitt romney pushes this high-tech fence, and you can see how he's been criticized for lack of specifics on his reform plan. you can also learn where that border fence stands. now, even if you think you already know who you will vote for, which a lot of voters across the country do, it's still good and important to know where they stand on the issues most important to you and to hold you to promises. that's where their websites kick in. you don't have to write it down. both president obama and mitt
know on our website, cnn.com/opinion, you posed these foreign policy questions to barack obama. number one, can you tell us specifically what the afghan troop surge accomplished? and this, can you guarantee that iran will not have acquired a nuclear weapon by the time you finish a second term in office? david frum, foreign policy seems to be one of the president's strengths, at least that is what some of these polls indicate. of the two questions we just showed, some of the questions you posed here in this ten questions for obama to answer piece, which is likely to be toughest for the president to answer and why? >> all right, well, i put foreign policy questions at the top, that's so core to a president's responsibilities, domestic, occupy the second half of the list. the tougher question would be the afghanistan question. this is the president's probably single largest scale foreign policy decision, the bin laden raid, a tough call and he's made many other decisions both public and secret. but he -- he campaigns strongly in 2008 oninding down the iraq war and escalating up the afghan
. it will be a small town hall style. there will be questions on domestic and foreign policy. bill: there is no rest for president obama as you imagine. back to the campaign grind today, mr. obama holds a rally in denver. anded henry traveling live with the president in denverment what is the campaign saying this morning about last night? >> very chilly this morning in denver, chilly reception for the president last night from right to left. i spoke as to stewart stevens, and he said luke can't have bill clinton stand in for you in these debates. it's the one man going head-to-head with the challenger. bill mahr said maybe the t-t doe president does need his teleprompter. when he loses bill mahr he's in a little bit of trouble. i think the president started long with trying to reframe everything. it's not about the last four years it's a choice for the next four years. >> the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and rollback regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a differe
when i was in the presidential campaign with jimmy carter we were not allowed to bring foreign policy in, what i said about the president going to las vegas while the consulate was still smolders and goes off for a fundraiser and people would have been crucified. i remember after the seizing of the hostage in '79 when myself and other top members members of the campaign handful of us begged him to campaign we were in a tight race with ted contend. he absolutely refused. i need to be here. i can't do this on the road. >> bill: president obama's decision to go it vegas is obvious. >> but also this narrative to put out a narrative when you know differently as we had heard. >> bill: who put it out. >> the white house. look, you have a national security advisor who was a politician and a political operative tom donilin who was also the person. and the white house susan rice was not in the line of what was she doing out sunday doing five shows? she is not in the chain of command on this. >> bill: somebody did it. >> somebody told her why do d. they keep promoting the taped story. it was ups
obama. the fact is this administration has a terrible record on foreign policy. you now have hillary clinton trying to rush extra money to egypt when i would frankly suspend all aid to egypt. >> sean: $450 million more. >> it's inconceivable. a house committee chairman has put a hold on the money. that's the right thing to do. there's no reason to send the head of the muslim brotherhood another penny. the president in egypt the head of a radical organization dedicated to pushing the united states out of the middle east. >> sean: the first presidential debate is on wednesday. the administration has been spending most of their weekend trying to lower expectations for the great orator obama, even the president saying, well, romney's good, i'm just okay. does that work if you're a sitting president? >> look, incumbent presidents who lose debates are in big trouble. this is a president who has the begins of a new recession, that with all the economic reports wednesday, thursday, friday are pointing to a in recession. the philadelphia federal reserve is pointing to a new recession. the man
of the administration was to downplay the attack because they don't want any foreign policy -- nobody comes to a protest with rocket launchers so it had -- they are the markings of something more than a spontaneous protest than had gone awry. but i do think the white house is basically placing the burden of the white house on the intelligence agency and saying they were following what they were being told and they didn't really confirm that it was a terrorist attack until some days, even a week later. and i think the president, in his initial remarks at the white house did call it an act of terror, just, yeah, all the protests. >> okay. anne let's listen to a bit more here of the matter on mete the press. >> the president failed the level of the american people and called it a trift attack. because you had to be concerned about another terrorist attack in the middle east after al qaeda had been defeated. >> that's preposterous and really offensive. this presidential record on terrorism takes a back seat to no one. >> ann, is the white house at all concerned this may become an issue on the campaign trail

and the substance of their policy. this has become an ideologically driven election. no longer referendum on foreign wars or economic failings, this is a choice of doctrine and of direction. so perhaps that's why i don't mind sharing a little political science secret with you. although the debates routinely draw large viewing audiences, evidence shows that voters do learn a little bit of information from them, but political scientists also tend to agree that debates don't actually make a difference in the outcome. sorry. it's at least statistically true. most often, you can accurately predict where a race will end up after the debates by knowing where things stood before the debates. but don't tell the candidates. because with the first presidential debate coming up wednesday, governor romney and president obama will be gearing up for a fight. that's a good thing. we still need the debates. it's a so krat i can sem nor of sorts for the country having the candidates stand behind their podiums forced to answer for nair proposals. we get to see how the ideas stand up under questioning before you decide
minute debate was streamed live on the internet and topics include foreign policy, entitlements, and the economy. >> income redistribution. do you believe in it? >> do you? >> no. i asked first. >> how is this a two personality such as yourselves are polar opposites coming together when congress can't. what advise would you give congress? [ laughter ] >> wait wait wait. >> you have to laugh. that is funny. the debate was dubbed the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium. proceeds went to charities. >>> space x is scheduled to send another shipment to the international space station. it plans to launch its unmanned dragon cargo ship tomorrow night. however thick clouds are a big concern and forecasters say there is a 60% chance of rain. this could delay the launch. this will be the second space x mission to the space station. >>> the prices at the pump went up again overnight at many bay area gas stations. right now gas prices are at an all-time high here in california at an average of $4.67 a gallon. that hike is being blamed on a southern california refinery which stopped pro
that in the context of all of it together and suggest the president has had perhaps a failed foreign policy agenda. >> go ahead, job. >> this is a domestic debate. they're going to have to do it in a way that doesn't clearly violate the focus of this debate, that's a difficult line to walk. >> they're talking economy. all the different chunks of the debate, 15 minutes, 15 minutes here and there, a lot having to do with the economy. and let's talk about the october jobs numbers, one of your october surprises. they will be released f ed four before november 6th. the big one that could be the big one, right, for both of you, for voters heading to the voting booths. >> that's right. you can set your watch to that one. just days before. if it is a bad jobs number, that's the last psychological impression the voters go to the ballot booth on tuesday will have on issue number one, the economy. >> margaret hoover, let's talk about your piece on cnn.com. you called it romney's best bet, be mr. fix it. you talk about something mitt romney is not talking about very much, romney care. let me quote you. even m
in the next couple of debates and i don't think mitt will either. >> next debate is going to focus on foreign policy and our latest polling shows that president obama has an advantage there, 52% to 43% even after the crisis in libya that you and i have spoken a lot about. what do you think governor romney, who you support, what do you think he has to do to make headway there? >> just point out the facts, that we're in retreat, withdrawal, iraq is unraveling, al qaeda is on the upswing every place in the middle east. this terrible stuff that's going on of afghans in uniform killing americans in uniform. all the president has done has announced withdrawals, withdrawals. we're leaving. he has overruled his military advisers and we find ourselves in a terribly difficult position throughout the middle east. the latest, of course, benghazi, repeated warnings that there were threats to the security of the consulate, which were obviously ignored and the president flies to las vegas. >> i assume the obama campaign is listening, taking notes on that and preparing for those kinds of questions. senator j
to foreign policy, it's not likely to get any easier for the president. the middle east is a tinderbox. the murder of an american ambassador in libya goes begging for an explanation as to why repeated requests for additional security in our consulate in benghazi were turned down. and the white house won't answer any questions about this except to say that the fbi is conducting an investigation. the fbi. that's not nearly enough. here's the question, why did president obama do so poorly at last night's debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on the blog or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. >> good question, jack. >>> bored, aloof, even arrogant, some of the words critics are using to describe the president's performance at last night's debate. up next i'll ask his press secretary to explain the performance what was going on. plus, pursed lips and raised eyebrows. how one expert uses special software to measure the candidates' expressions. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap
